A' Cleachdadh na Gàidhlig: slatan-tomhais ann an dìon cànain sa choimhearsnachd is a collection of essays edited by Richard A.V. Cox and Timothy Currie Armstrong addressing the current state of the Gaelic language and assessing efforts to effect language revitalization in Gaelic-speaking communities in Scotland. This book is ground-breaking on several counts.[1][2][vague] It is significant that this is the first book of its kind that addresses sociolinguistic and language planning issues surrounding the Gaelic-language revival predominantly written in the Gaelic language itself.[3] It is also noteworthy and unusual for its breadth of analysis, drawing together academic research articles, articles by policy makers, and articles from activists and language development professionals reporting on specific Gaelic revitalization projects.[4][5] Four of the articles address the Welsh language revival and make useful comparisons between initiatives in Wales and the revival in Scotland.[3]
